"on hold" music

Seriously, just because someone put you on hold and you're stuck listening to it, doesn't mean you have to put it on speaker phone so the whole office is stuck with it!

1. and where do they find those

recordings that sound like an old 8 track being played in an old tight spring 4 x 4 on a rocky dirt road, under water?

6. Those are the worst!

I can generally ignore any music I don't like (most of it anyway) but the hold-music where the recording is not only in bad shape, but pushed up to the volume of ELEVEN makes me want to just hang up and mail my complaint in.

2. The best on hold music is

the Chicago Symphony, playing some of Sir Georg Solti's greatest hits.

3. AAAAAAAGGGGGGGRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!

I almost had to beat my boss the other day. Instead, I just stood in his doorway and glared at him until he got the message. Probably a better option.

8. This is a favorite of doctors and dentist offices.



I think you have to play this song on hold, by law, to keep your medical license.
